    6/5/09 Reds vs Cubbies

    Per Fay:

    Hairston 3b
    Dickerson cf
    Phillips 2b
    Nix lf
    Hernandez c
    Bruce rf
    Gonzalez ss
    Rosales 1b
    Owings p

    (Owings 0-2, 6.75 ERA in career vs. Cubs, in 16 innings)

    -Nix batting cleanup (has done so once previously this year)....Bruce batting 6th (3rd time he has hit there this year). Bruce was 1-for-27 on the road trip, and is on 0-for-17 skid. And in his last 13g, is 5-for-47 (.106).

    Dusty Baker, pre-game, discussing Bruce hitting 6th: "We're just trying to take a little pressure off him. ... He just needs a little blooper, a little bleeder to come out of it ... rarely do you see a guy come out of it with a home run."

    Also: "Nobody's pulling harder for him than any of us are."

    -- Baker said he had talked again to Joey Votto, but Baker declined to provide details. We saw Votto in street clothes in the clubhouse, but reporters had already been told by Reds media relations director Rob Butcher that Votto is not yet ready to speak publicly. Votto went on the DL on May 30 because of stress and is eligible to come off the DL June 14. Baker said he does not have a timetable on Votto's return.

    --Willy Taveras (hamstring) could be available in an emergency tonight, Baker said. Taveras has missed five of the last six games with a tight right hammy.

    Cubs lineup:
    Soriano lf
    Theriot ss
    Fukudome cf
    D.Lee 1b
    Hoffpauir rf
    Fontenot 3b
    K.Hill C
    A.Blanco 2b
    C.Zambrano p
    (Zambrano is 14-10 career vs. Reds, 3.06 ERA, in 32 g (28 starts)

    I had tickets to tonight's game. I was going to bring my parents (Cub fans). Unfortunately, we couldn't make trip, so we're stuck watching on tv. Is it wrong that I was hoping for a rainout

    And here we go again. Yet another first-inning deficit, this time a gift coming on three walks!

    GABP must be rocking right now

    I certainly hope the Owings experiment is over after tonight. Please be good, Maloney.

    If Hairston had any kind of arm, and the umpire had any kind of eyesight, Owings retires 6 of the 7 batters he faced, 4 on strikes.

    I hope we get the same strike zone.

    1-2-3 inning for Owings. Cubs still lead 1-0 middle of 2nd.

    Re: 6/5/09 Reds vs Cubbies

    So, at the middle of the 3rd...still Cubs 1 and Red Stockings 0. Owings has settled down nicely.

    We are patiently waiting for the fireworks.

    After a shaky first, Owings has settled down nicely. 5 k's. Nice play by Rosales at first to end the inning. 1-0 Cubs after 2 1/2

    99-63 WS champs (Cards take 2nd WC, Mil 3rd, Pit 4th, Chi 5th)
    Bruce/Votto neck and neck MVP race (neither takes it)
    Bailey CYA winner
    Hamilton ROY & GG

    Why must they remind me of the Phil Dumatrait Reds era?
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    How's this for surprising...3rd inning, Greinke's allowed 4 runs already. Including his first dinger in I don't know HOW long.

    Okay, make that 6 earned runs in the 3rd.

    1-2-3 inning for Owings. How about the offense gets something going now?

    Re: 6/5/09 Reds vs Cubbies

    1-2-3 fourth for Owings. If not for that leadoff single off Hairston's glove in the 3rd, Owings would've had 3 straight 3 up's 3 down's. I don't know what it is with Reds starters and rough first innings, but it's certainly becoming a trend.

    BP looked terrible in that at-bat.
